Stencils by Kasia for Crafters Workshop, and Tim Holtz
Well, not much to report from my little art studio of late, life has been busy busy busy. This year I am doing more hours in my 'real' job as a school teacher, and a lot of my time has been taken up with getting ready for the new school term. I love both my art, and my job as a school teacher and it genuinely is very difficult getting the balance right, Have I made the right decision this year? Who knows! Time will tell..... The way I look at it is that I have half of my time in school, and half of my time for art, but one thing has a habit of taking over from the other ;-) I'm really really hoping that I can manage it this year and KEEP THE BALANCE.
So, here's a work in progress. I suppose this is a bit like an art journal page but it's not in my journal, it's on a large gesso board which has a beautiful smooth surface for painting on. I love it! Sometimes when I'm painting I don't want to make a pretty picture, I want to FEEL it. Do you know that feeling? So here is my messy, raw, scribblings and finger painting in it's early stages, step-by-step, snapped with my phone, so you can see how it is evolving.
I have no idea where I'm going with this, I just need to let it takes its own course ...
And don't forget I'm taking part in the fabulous Wanderlust again next year. It was fab last year and the teacher line up is amazing. You can it now at the early bird price! *Click here for all the details*
Byee for now :-)
